WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“The Bible and the Virgin Mary is easily the most interesting and most informative source of information on Mary I’ve ever watched, listened to, or read. The information was new to me, and the presentation was clear and inspirational. I can’t imagine anyone not being inspired to love our Holy Mother and recognize her importance in salvation history after watching this series.”
“I have a devotion to our Blessed Mother Mary and the Bible and the Virgin Mary presentation has provided an in-depth explanation of her role as a co-redeemer. Truly Hail Mary, Full of Grace! God bless to all of you who worked so hard to make this possible.” - Rebecca
“It was an amazing experience. All the more I love our Dear Mother Mary. I would like to thank Dr Scott Hahn and Mr. Matthew Leonard for such an excellent presentation. How everything relates between the Old and New Testaments opened my eyes. It was very clear. Thank you St Paul Center for working hard to help us understand the Scriptures and deepen our faith!” - Ruella
“I needed to go deeper with Mary to make sure she is deep in my heart ... in my roots with Jesus. This course has helped me enormously and more ... it’s like a spark that sets you on fire.” - Valeria
“It was excellent in every way but simply didn’t not have the luxury of that much time to spend. I hope to in the future. Keep up the great work and don’t compromise for the sake of people like me. I know that there’s many retired folk that must have received great graces by spending time on that beautiful exposition of our Blessed Lady in Scripture. I hope to be one of them soon!” - John
“I was fortunate to be able to watch the Bible and the Virgin Mary. There is so much to learn about the Bible and about Mary. Matthew Leonard made the series exciting and the need to get to the next lesson to continue. I always thought that I knew Mary. I did not begin to know her. Now, I feel very comfortable and close to the Virgin Mary. The desire to learn more is very strong. Realizing the connections and learning of Mary’s true role in salvation is remarkable. I thank Dr. Hahn and Matthew Leonard for this remarkable series I look forward to more of the same.” - Louise
“GREAT in terms of content, presentation and format! Matthew Leonard is very ENGAGING. I learned a lot!” - Jet
“I wanted to deepen my knowledge of and love of Mary. I desired to be able to pray the rosary with greater devotion and understanding of the mysteries. This study greatly helped me reach my goal. However, the study did so much more in strengthening my relationship to Jesus and his Mother. Also, the presentation was excellent in laying out each area with such clarity. It was so important to see the linking of the Old and New Testaments and their relationship to the Church dogmas. The book Hail Holy Queen and the workbook gave life that reminded me of the Scripture, ‘Were not our hearts burning with fire?’ Thank you for this great offering. I look forward to other offerings.” - Carole
“The Bible and the Virgin Mary; it is a most beautiful, enriching and inspiring series. Enjoyed it profoundly. It is very informative, extremely well researched and very well presented. Superlative in any respect; I highly recommend it for personal and for group study, to learn more about our Blessed Mother and her role in Salvation History. A sincere “Thank you” to Dr. Scott Hahn and to Matthew Leonard. Truly well done!” - Walter
